London: Macmillan and Co., 1899. [Literature] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (21 x 14cm), pp.xii; 272; , advertisements. In publisher's red cloth with gilt titles to spine and gilt elephant motif to upper board. Top edge gilt. Mostly clean within, endpapers browned, cloth shows some general wear and handling. Very good at best. An inexpensive copy of the first edition; Kipling's famous tales about adolescent boys at a British boarding school, complete with amateur skullduggery and a fair amount of giddy jesting, japery and your run of the mill sadistic bullying that obviously served to make the British Empire great; throw them to the Jesuits I say.
